AF Gen. Warns It's Not Just Illegals at the Border, It's Cartel Drones—With Over 1,000 Encounters a Month

We’ve written about the disaster at the southern border, where as many as
10 million illegals have flooded into the country under Joe Biden’s watch, but there are plenty of non-human encounters as well—with drones, up to 1,000 times a month.

That’s the disturbing takeaway from Air Force General Gregory M. Guillot, who testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday and answered questions from Sen. Ted Budd (R-NC). Guillot took over as Commander of the United States Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command in February.

And he's concerned about what he's seeing in his new position:

"The number of incursions was something that was alarming to me as I took command last month," Guillot told the senator. "I don't know the actual number – I don't think anybody does – but it's in the thousands..."

Budd pressed for what time frame Guillot was referencing in regard to the "thousands" of drone incursions.

Guillot responded, "I would say in probably over a month we could probably have over 1,000 a month."

DOD officials have admitted that thousands of drones are crossing the southern border every month.The threat to our homeland is skyrocketing on Biden's watch.

Meanwhile, the Air Force is cutting aircraft from NC that can detect & destroy these drones.

What are these drones, and who’s controlling them? It doesn’t take a brain scientist to conclude that they are likely mostly operated by the human and drug trafficking Mexican cartels, who presumably are scouting the U.S. response to the border invasion and looking for the best ways to counter it. The unmanned aircraft could themselves be used to transport narcotics:

Indeed, interested parties were watching from the other side when a helicopter flying near the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas tragically crashed March 8, killing two New York National Guard members and a Border Patrol agent. Although it doesn't appear to be drone footage in this case, whoever is behind the camera is clearly paying attention to our efforts—and laughing at the deaths of U.S. servicemembers.

Replying to @BillMelugin_BREAKING: Per Border Patrol source, cartel members were watching the helicopter on their drone when it crashed, then they zoomed into the crash site and laughed about it. Posted on cartel social media. The La Grulla area sees frequent cartel activity via drug & human smuggling.

But drones and illegal immigrants from South and Central America aren’t the only problems at the southern border that concern Guillot – he’s also troubled by the alarming number of Chinese nationals sneaking in.

"The number of Chinese that are coming across the border is a big concern of mine. In fact, in the short period of time that I've been in command, I've gone down to the southern border to talk to the agents and leadership about that. And then I've also spoken with the acting commissioner of the CBP on this subject," Guillot said.

Guillot continued, "What concerns me most about specifically the Chinese migrants is – one, that they're so centralized in one location on the border. And two, is while many may be political refugees, other explanations, the ability for counterintelligence to hide in plain sight in those numbers."

Biden’s purposeful failures at the border are legendary and will go down in history as some of the most craven presidential policies in history. Hopefully, that and his many other fiascoes will lead to his forced departure from the White House in January 2025.
